"The double-hung seems fine, but the sliders fit loosely in their frames and air blows through where the sections meet and at the bottom. They are far less energy-efficient than the old windows they replaced, which were not drafty." -Lisa, MO

"Their triple payne r-7 panorama double hung is a fantastic product for the price" -Quinn, MN

Double Hung Windows by Simonton
Rating 3
"HIGHLY recommend NOT to WASTE your money!!! Quality and Customer Service (or lack thereof) are less than desirable. Spent over $3,000 for 3 windows and there is a 2 degree difference between Simonton and our old 1986 aluminum windows. NOT IMPRESSED!!!" -Cold in Colorado

"We purchased 10 Simonton double hung and mulled twin double hung windows. They were affordable, easy to clean, and look good. The problems started from day one with the windows. " -MJ
